Veteran prepped for surgery stopped from having operation
Despite recent improvements to veterans' health care, those who served our country still have to navigate red tape and referrals for care outside the VA. This is one veteran's story of how his surgery came to a screeching halt while he was in the process of being prepped for the operating room.
Frequently veterans will ask if we provide counseling services.
In response to this, Dr. Valette will be accepting a few veteran’s or family members for
Tele-Health personal counseling sessions. Phone, text, email sessions.
Daily availability to each veteran.
At this time, only available to veteran’s who live in Colorado, Texas, Florida, Washington, Iowa, S.Dakota, Nevada, Alaska, Hawaii. Email for more info and pricing: Info@VeteransPsychEvaluations.com

Jim...This is what VA has been implementing in fact for the last six+ months. The proposal clearly lays out that certain previous programs didn’t work, including the Expedited Claims Adjudication Initiative that dated back to 2009.
As to this program, well it will remain to be seen if it meets that goals that VA projected of 125 days for local appeals and one year for BVA appeals. I am skeptical, given the acknowledged backlog today in excess of three hundred thousand pending appeals. BVA worked off 50,000 appeals last year, but had 60,000 come in the door; I looked at the latest Monday Morning Workload Report from VBA and it showed some 238,130 appeals pending under VBA control. Readers should note that with publication of the Proposed Rule, anyone is entitled to comment to VA as to their proposal.
The American Federation of Government Employees on Wednesday filed an
internal grievance with the Veterans Affairs Department alleging
“numerous unfair labor practices” related to the department’s
implementation of a series of controversial workforce executive orders.

Homebound with diabetes, heart disease, and other ailments, the 68-year-old Army veteran
finally found a lifeline three months ago from a private home health provider
recommended by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Suddenly, he could go
to doctor’s appointments, shopping, and routine outings like a haircut. Then on Friday,
the veteran was on his own again. The health care provider discontinued its services for
Ron and 15 other New Hampshire veterans who are housebound or
cannot venture outside without assistance. The reason? The VA had failed
to pay nearly $60,000 in bills dating to late last year, according to
Janet and Rich Sullivan, the providers and co-owners of Right at Home.
What Is a Fully Developed Claim?
The Fully Developed Claims (FDC) program is an optional initiative that offers Veterans and survivors faster decisions from VA on compensation, pension, and survivor benefit claims.
Veterans and survivors simply submit all relevant records in their possession, and those records which are easily obtainable, such as private medical records, at the time they make their claim and certify that they have no further evidence to submit. VA can then review and process the claim more quickly.
Gun owners are divided when it comes to how important owning a gun is to their overall identity.
One-in-four say it is very important, while the rest view this as somewhat important or not
important. Those who say being a gun owner is very important to their identity are
nearly unanimous in their belief that the right to own a gun is essential to their
personal freedom. Many, but not all, gun owners exist in a social context where gun ownership
is the norm. Roughly half of all gun owners say that all or most of their friends own guns.

VA Disability - When the initial decision finds no "nexus"
What is the "nexus" and why is it important?
From the Desk of Drew Early, Veterans Law Attorney
Hey Jim: This is a bit of an outlier of a case but still important if GAF scores were involved
in a VA mental disability assessment (typically with PTSD, but can also apply to other disorders).
The Court recognized that a GAF score is a subjective assessment; thus, it should be treated as
such and not be utilized if other rating criteria under the DSM-V are available.
(The DSM-V is the latest version of the standard manual on mental disorders from the American Psychiatric Association and the medical community no longer utilizes GAF scores).
THE ISSUES 1. Entitlement to an increased disability rating for service-connected depressive disorder, currently evaluated as 30 percent disabling. 2. Entitlement to a total disability rating due to individual unemployability (TDIU) as a result of service-connected disabilities.
This veteran supported Trump. Until Trump deported his wife.
But now, “I am eating my words”
Agents field a wide range of problems, from questions about medical bills and
health issues to psychological trauma and sexual assault. But staffers told the paper
they’re often unable to do much for callers beyond typing out their complaints and
routing them to different departments across the country. Still, perhaps most bizarrely,
some veterans have called the hotline just want to let Trump know he’s doing a great job
VETERANS BENEFITS ADMINISTRATION
Office of the Inspector General
Why the OIG Did This Review The OIG conducted this review to
determine whether Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) employees
required disabled veterans to submit to unwarranted medical reexaminations.
None of the three men has served in the U.S. military. None of them has held a government post. None of them has had potential conflicts vetted. Nor is the reason for their interest in the VA clear. In all likelihood, few people outside White House and VA inner circles, much less the 9 million veterans served by VA medical facilities, even knew their names: Marvel Entertainment Chairman Ike Perlmutter, lawyer Mark Sherman and Bruce Moskowitz, a Palm Beach, Fla., doctor whose “medical concierge” business connects people with medical clinics catering to wealthy patients.

If there's one thing military members know, it's that when the Defense Department gives you too much money, it will come back for it eventually.The VA is similar, but the system is worse.
Chronic pain can last over a long period of time, even if it comes and goes. This is something that many adults suffer from, and it is one of the symptoms often reported by Gulf War Veterans. In fact, nearly all Gulf War Veterans referred to the War Related Illness and Injury Study Center (WRIISC) report chronic pain as one of their top complaints. These Veterans have struggled with chronic or recurring pain since their return from the Persian Gulf in 1991 with little to no improvement, and without a known cause for their pain.
TDIU??? Unemployability Questions??? IU????
ProPublica, a nonprofit news agency, reported last week that a trio of wealthy members
of Trump’s private club in Palm Beach, Fla., are effectively running the VA in secret.
According to the report, O’Rourke gained their approval.
Robert Steiner says he suffered for days without food when the VA slammed him with bills and the federal government docked his Social Security -- all because of a mix-up on his way to the hospital.
Moulton also criticized Trump’s new Space Force defense program, a proposed sixth branch of government that would focus on military matters outside planet Earth. “The commander in chief of our country right now dodged the draft five times to avoid serving in the Vietnam war,” Moulton said, “but maybe if he could have been a space cadet he would have signed up.”
Now they call his hotline desperate for help.
“I will instruct my staff that if a valid complaint is not addressed, that the issue be brought directly to me,” Trump said in 2016. “I will pick up the phone and fix it myself if I have to.”
The Trump administration believes that kneeling during the national anthem is a grievous
insult to the men and women who risked their lives fighting for
America, but using political power to help payday lenders bury service
members beneath unpayable debts — while allowing one’s
billionaire friends to override veterans’ preferences for health-care policy — is not.
